Did you get outside over the weekend? I had a relaxing time in the back yard, some favorite tunes, the warm sun it was a “time away” from all the stuff from Covid to perplexing first 16 days of 2021. It was rejuvenating in spirt, counting my blessings and just being thankful. The business world is running 24/7… has for some time I guess, but seems as if it is going even faster! All the advice columns say, “Remember to take time for yourself, the things and people you love.” It is a shame we almost have to work doing that sometimes. Well, it refilled my tank, and I am ready to hit another work week.
We’ got a lot going on in this new year. Our goal is to become more relevant and more valuable to our members in 2021. We are putting in action and adding value to that slogan flying over Pine Street that says, “Business Coming Back Strong in 2021.” Have you heard about Marketing 101? Last summer and fall we ran two surveys and small business owners overwhelmingly told us they needed more expertise in moving more of their marketing to the web and learning how to use social media to grow their business. We listened and we are delivering with quality and proven expertise. Check out this LINK! It is not a Zoom, it is in a big conference room at Clearsuites, only three businesses at a time (or people), social-distanced and getting personalized service. Our instructor is from The Marketing House, they are very knowledgeable and have helped other businesses in Lodi reach their best year ever! Hurry classes are filling up!
